Disney is planning a live action remake of its 1963 animated feature film The Sword in the Stone, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The script will be written by Game of Thrones writer/producer Brian Cogman, and broduced by Brigham Taylor.
The original film, the last Disney animated feature released before Walt Disney’s death, is a loose adaptation of T.H. White’s novel of the same name, which eventually became part of The Once and Future King. The story follows a young King Arthur as he is mentored by the wizard Merlin.
This is just the latest fantasy project on Cogman’s plate. He’s also writing the film adaptation of the Magic: The Gathering collectible card game, and the young adult fantasy novel The False Prince.
This is just the latest live action remake for Disney. They already Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and other live action projects in various stages of development.
